Breakout Sessions

  • Updated

This article is intended for event organizers to better understand how to add virtual breakout functionality to a session

Attendees will be able to be randomly assigned to breakout sessions directly from any session that those attendees are currently in.

In order to set this up, please go to Manage > Sessions and select the session that you would like your breakout rooms to stem from. You will need to turn on Live Stream and set the Hosting to be Boomset, and then Toggle on Breakouts. You may want to update the Viewer Count Visibility setting so that Speakers and Admins can see how many people will be able to participate and you can ensure that you have the expected amount of attendees in that session before you create your breakout rooms.

During your event and in your session within the virtual event, you or your staff will need to be logged into the session as an Admin to control the breakouts. Learn more on how to control the breakouts here
